Kadle Maddi(Split gram lentil sweet)

Kadle maddi is perfect festive sweet.In our community we prepare this sweet in a big festivals like Navaratri,Depavali or Ganesh Chaturthi..I am preparing Kadle Maddi for the first time by my own....

Gram lentil(Split) 1 cup(1 portion)(Chana Dhal)
Jaggary 3/4 cup(or as per sweet)
Cardamom 3-4 (powdered)
Shredded fresh coconut 1 bowl
a pinch of salt Ghee for garnishing
Water to cook lentil

Soak the lentil in water for 2-3 hours and pressure cook by adding 3-4 cup of water(Lentil should be soft about 3-4 whisils).
Once it is cool separate the lentil from water completely and add in to a thick bottom pan.
Now also add coconut,jaggary and salt to it,turn on the heat and give a good stir for 10-12 mins(everything should mix well) then add cardamom powder and again saute for 6-7 mins(need to saute till the mixture become non-stick to the pan).Then turn of the heat..

Now the Kadle Maddi is ready to serve..Garnish with ghee before serving....

Note:Melt the ghee and garnish to give good flaver..
you can also add dry fruits(fried in ghee) while serving.
